Interior Design Trends for 2021

It’s been a unique year across the world as countries went into lockdown. And during this time, many people have realized that no matter what is happening in the world around them, the comfort and safety of your home can make life just plain HAPPY!

The bond between interior design and our emotions has gained a lot of attention in recent years and a lot of research proves that a thoughtful design of your home can make your family more creative, peaceful, and even happier. Many elements like colors, textures, or objects inside a house can have an impact on someone’s mood.


COLORS, for example, can generate emotions and they even became part of our vocabulary when we want to describe our mood. Feeling blue, green with envy or thinking pink are just some of the most used phrases.
Warmer shades of yellow or blue can inspire relaxation, vibrant colors like green and orange encourage communication, red can easily make a statement but also can appear a little hostile just because it’s such an imposing color and icy colors tend to lend themselves to a feeling of calm.This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is tt-1.jpg
AI Aqua is going to be a huge trend in 2021 and it’s being described as a “positive hue” that is both “sporty and trend-forward.”
Now, isn’t this the BEST NEWS? Going along with this positive line of thinking, maybe we should all have AI Aqua wall accents or decorative elements in our homes, just to make sure 2021 will have a positive vibe since we know another 2020 is out of the question:).

Susan Herring, Senior Interior Designer, Décor Direct Interiors reflects, “I expect the new Spring fabrics will be bold, refreshing colors to coordinate with the aqua color- such as coral and blush tones, sand and neutrals and lots of white. Coastal inspired interiors are still a big design trend and not just in the Coastal areas. A lot of homeowners are making their homes feel like a retreat since many are working from home right now.”
DON’T BE AFRAID OF BLACK ACCENTS

If you are trying to find the right tile pattern for your room, another classic color combination is making a comeback. Black and white Spanish floor tiles are so popular and they may be the perfect combination for your home! More pattern tile HERE.

Cori Bane, Schell Brothers Design Consultant advises, “Black accents, hardware, tile, and cabinetry can be the key for a signature look. It can be a bold move but as long as the rest of the room is light and airy, these statement pieces can be a great way to add a little drama to the room.”
GOLD ACCENTS

Gold can be so beautiful and warm and it’s modern and on-trend!
If you are not quite ready to fully commit to gold accents, one new trend you could try is mixing metals! This is a fabulous way to bring interest and beauty to a room.
See how to mix metals in your décor HERE.
HOLY SHIPLAP!

The Lilac, Schell Brothers at Jefferson Creek
This easy-to-install wall treatment is still one of the best design tricks you can use for your home. There’s just something about this material that brings a clean and desirable look to any space. You can use it for the fireplace walls, ceiling or you can even do an accent shiplap wall, it fits almost any design that you’re dreaming about and it adds texture to an otherwise simple room.

The Clubhouse at Saddle Ridge, Schell Brothers
Essentially, the modern farmhouse style is the more sophisticated cousin of the traditional country style. It is the perfect combination of everything we love about contemporary minimalism mixed with the warm and comforting rustic look.
Modern farmhouse styling is a fresh, contemporary look, but at its heart, it’s all about feeling warm, welcoming, and friendly.
You can find more creative ways to perfect this style in your home HERE.

No matter what trends you choose for your house, always create a home that looks like you! The more you surround yourself with things that make you feel good, the more you’ll capture the feeling of home.

SAFE SOCIAL DISTANCING activities to do this Halloween

By Adelina Riddick, in Fun Stuff

What will Halloween look like this year?

Halloween is supposed to be the spookiest holiday on the calendar in the US, filled with sweet trick-or-treating delights, festive costumes and, so many fun-filled activities!

But 2020 is not like most years. The majority of the most known Halloween Festivals have been canceled and restrictions have been applied in order to minimize the risk for virus transmission.

The State of Delaware has released guidelines regarding the safety of certain fall activities. Some of the high-risk activities are considered:

  • door-to-door-trick or treating
  • trunk or treat events that are organized in places where you can’t maintain social distancing
  • hayrides with people from outside your household unless everyone is wearing a face covering and is 6 feet apart from non-household members

See more detailed guidance information for Delaware state

HERE.

The HAPPY NEWS is that Halloween is far from CANCELED. It may look a little bit different, but like this whole year, it will be a Halloween like no other!

7 SAFE SOCIAL DISTANCING ACTIVITIES to do this October

By Adelina Riddick, in All Communities

In October any wonderful unexpected thing might be possible, after all, we are all living AN AUTUMN LIKE WE’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

WHY WE LOVE OCTOBER?

Fall can easily become your favorite season. The air gets slightly cool, perfect for walks, hiking, and bike rides and you usually feel the need to wear one of your favorite light jackets or a sweater in the evenings. Halloween and Thanksgiving Day are around the corner and this means three things: fun, family, and lots of pumpkin and cinnamon goodies to eat!

Oh, delicious autumn!

Nature is definitely in a full celebratory mode in October. The yellows, the reds, the oranges, the falling leaves, the crisp air, the colorful pumpkin patches; apple picking, corn mazes and we can go on and on about why October means GOOD VIBES ONLY!

Nothing about 2020 has been what anyone expected BUT friends, we made it to fall, so let’s not take that for granted and appreciate that we are living in a place where we are lucky enough to witness the wonder of four seasons, whilst others only get two. Let’s LOVE this season for what it brings!

LOOKING FOR FUN OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES IN COASTAL DELAWARE?
